This is THE place to stay in Tacoma. The location is perfect in a quiet neighborhood with pretty homes and an amazing view of the sound, trees and homes below. Didn't ever want to leave. The unit itself is gorgeous with great attention to detail with well stocked kitchen, comfy chairs, gas fireplace, and large screen TV. Homey and classy. It feels like a home not a rental. The hosts, Mark and Deb are delightful and helpful and were great at replying promptly. Their new puppy was an added bonus! I highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a luxurious stay in Tacoma close to Proctor Street with shops and grocery stores (the Met!) and 5 minutes from University of Puget Sound. We want to return!!

This is a gem - rare and beautiful and stocked with everything you could ask for. Almost don't want to talk about it for fear that it will be snatched up quickly and not available when I want to return.

Mark made sure we were welcome & prepared for our visit. Since my mom was in a wheel chair, we choose his house with an elevator. The door ways were extra wide and perfect for her chair. The house was super clean and very comfortable. The neighborhood was beautiful; we enjoyed driving around looking at the different houses. The view from our apartment was unbeatable. We were fortunate enough to be there during 4th of July and saw the most amazing fireworks show. We had a five-star stay. Thanks Mark!

Deb and I love family, friends, entertaining, wine, food, traveling & Washington State University Cougars! Go Cougs:) Our family consists of two great active boys ages 10 & 11. In the nature of full disclosure our house at times can be a neighborhood hub filled with kids/neighbors, BBQ's and pop by's from friends or family. We entertain frequently however we also will respect our guests privacy.

For as long as I can remember growing up we had guests staying in our family home. Our guests ranged from students abroad to friends needing a place to stay.

Our favorite places to travel are Napa Valley and Maui! We are a very active family always on the go...
